It was the decades of working on Japanese stuff. Had forgotten the word fettling even existed. I think where I went wrong with the Comet was first.... you offering to sell me a big end bearing for $100 and secondly, my other self imposed rule to use the crap in the shed. CBX 550 wheels, GL500 frame, Ducati rear shock rocker, Norton box, modified BMW swingarm, Yamaha rear shock, etc. I’ll spare everyone the nauseating story on the seat upholstery.... trying to drum up the courage for version 5.0See Cyborg - you started out complaining about all the "fettling" of a standard (ish) Vincent, and now, way too deep into a special you are stating to realize how simple a vincent really is!
Hello Ken and All. When I saw the question did a twin fit in a slimline I thought they did because thought Garry Nemeceks Norvin was a slimline I found some photos of a club event with Garrys Norvin in them Seems I have clicked the next image in the film roll to the one I intended My apologies for my mistake and confusion So here is the pic I meant to send Now I really really hope this is a slimline I now also see in this pic a Vincati and I think a V Rod both also being talked about on this forum Seems I have fluked a trifecta Now I will nervously try to attach correct fileCyborg wins the cheese burger. Thats my wide line Norvin. Yes, a Vincent engine will go into a slime line. I have worked on a few.
